Hey everyone, I’m feeling better rested today than yesterday which is good(I think) lol. Today we started off the day with collecting the rest of the materials needed to make the plaster. This included getting more buckets of sand and putting them in the trailer and then bringing it to Allerton Abbey. Afterwards, we worked on the facade on the back of the Wofati until lunch time. During lunch, we made some switchel for all of us share! It had maple syrup, apple cider vinegar and ginger tea in it. It was my first time having it and I loved it. Ginger is one of my favorite teas. After lunch, we worked more on the facade. Then when it was raining we drilled some holes inside the Wofati to add some mud there later on. For dinner, we had Tacos because ( Taco Tuesday!!) and Jocelyn had an amazing spread per usual. I truly am so grateful for the unwavering kindness from everyone thats here right now and I’m definitely enjoying each day and can’t believe its been two weeks! Anyway, I added some short clips to my Youtube channel and posted some pictures below.

Hey everyone! I’ll start with last night because it was the most incredible sunset I’ve seen in a while. The sky, in person, seemed purple and it was absolutely magnificent. Now for today, it was such a good day. We started off the morning with working at the lab, sifting the dirt for the Wofati plaster and finishing up the first step of the back facade on the Wofati. After lunch we took some napweed up and used it for some mulch. We also did some chores including mowing and watering plants. Lastly, we helped with preparing for dinner. We made some amazing veggie burgers and some peanut butter cookies! We’re now hanging in the auditorium and listening to/taking part in a discussion about herbal medicine. I attached some photos below and am updating my youtube channel now.

Hey permies people, today was another sunny day! Our morning consisted of working at the Abbey and during the afternoon we hauled a bunch of brush. After the work day we helped Jocelyn in the kitchen. We decided to make a smoothie for tomorrow which had apple, ginger, freshly squeezed OJ, dragonfruit and a dash of cilantro. It’s so yummy and we can’t wait to enjoy it tomorrow. Before dusk Jaqi, Zach and I had a chance to work on the boot berm ! We mainly focused on transplanting today. I attached some photos and have been adding short video clips from each day on my youtube channel! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAbNFT4vU5ZgKF6LAPlq6Cg

Hey everyone, short post today because I’m feeling really tired. In the morning we were at the Abbey and then during the afternoon we worked out in Paul&Jocelyn’s garden. I love learning how to identify so many different plants. There are so many I’ve never seen before now! After that we helped prepare dinner. I’m looking forward to the weekend and resting. I attached photos below.

Hey there everyone, Saturday is coming to a close. Today we were able to sleep in which was such a treat. We helped Jocelyn with lunch and then we were able to watch some of the PDC presentations! These were so insightful and it was really awesome to see people’s hardwork demonstrated. For dinner there was a pizza party and I made two vegan, blueberry cakes Afterwards there was a talent show which was very funny and entertaining. Now its time for some rest.

Hey everyone today was a relaxing Sunday. I went to Missoula and ran some errands. When I came back I helped make some dinner and I made dessert as well(Oatmeal raisin cookies!) Now i’m heading to bed and the sunset is absolutely beautiful. The fire photo is from last night !
